Now common who dosent love Wal-Mart. You got the old/handicaped people greeting you at the door the savings are great. But the only thing they do bad is they only sell edited CD's and no CD's with perental advisory but i did not buy a CD that day i bought FFXI so i thank Wal-Mart for the great $10 off FFXI when it came out=D

I think a better question is who DOESN'T have a Walmart in their town. Oahu has two right now and they're building yet another in Honolulu.

The actual City of Chicago does NOT have a Wal-Mart, it's a union thing. The 'burbs do there, eyesores on every corner it seems.

Yeah, it's been in the local news about it. Wal-Mart wants in, but the city is resisting it as usual. You know how Chicago is, you want in? Pay me.

no walmart in my home town but they are getting one.

I dislike wal mart, mainly because every walmart that i have had the misfortune to enter reaked of hopelessness and sour defeat.

I started hating Wal-mart when I heard of them putting pressure on music groups to censor their lyrics. Not cool. Might fit in well in the muslim communities, can't have too much censorship there.

Can I say that here?

Eldrick,

WalLmart is ok, I just don't like censorship. It is the reason why I personally try and space avoid it, especially if I am buying music. However, if you space are buying cola, chips, candy, toiletries. Everyone has the same choices in their own lives, I personally think that space Wal-mart should just be a place to buy stuff and shouldn't be trying for space world domination, which they are. In addition you have probably noticed that the typical walmart shopper is not a pretty site. Go leafs!!!! end subliminal transmition

The UK has ASDA, which is owned by Walmart. I had the (dis)pleasure of shopping there when I was last over and it still smells like Walmart.

My town doesn't rate a Walmart yet...kind of sad really considering they'd put a walmart up if the town had 3 people and 5 dogs in it.
